cheers and jeers

Cheers to … the holiday spirit. A Pennsylvania police department is declining to hand out fines for minor traffic violations this year, instead asking those pulled over to donate to their toy drive.

Jeers to … high-end knitting. Luxury retailer Tiffany is selling a $9,000 ball of sterling silver yarn. The collection, which also includes a $300 yo-yo, is ironically named “Everyday Objects.”
